SJ 50 NW
3/62 Former cottage and
- adjoining pump approximately
5 metres to south of South
Cottage, latterly dairy, now store. Late C16 with mid-to late C19
partial rebuilding. Timber framed with red brick nogging; partly
rebuilt in red brick, painted to north-west ; plain tile roof. 2
framed bays aligned north-east/south-west; baffle-entry plan. One
storey and attic. Central gabled eaves dormer to south-east with 2-
light wooden casement. Framing: square panels, 2 from sole-plate to
wall-plate; straight corner braces. North-west front: 2 segmental-
headed 2-light C19 wooden casements flanking central boarded door; 2-
light segmental-headed wooden casements in right-hand gable end; collar
and tie-beam truss with queen struts and V-strutsexposed in left-hand
gable end with 2-light wooden leaded attic casement; small C20
casement at rear. Late C19 cast iron pump adjoins north-west wall.
Interior: framed north-east end wall and cross-wall; cambered tie
beams; single purlins with windbraces; chamfered posts; central
truncated stack with newel staircase adjoining to south-east; chamfered
beam to south-west bay and large plain joists to north-east bay. The
difference in floor construction might suggest that there was formerly
an open hall in the south west bay and the floored upper end in the
north-east bay; the first floor in the possible former hall is probably
a C17 insertion and the stack, staircase and the baffle-entry arrangement
also later alterations.
